I own this site
I was born on Mouheneenner land in Hobart, Tasmania and I pay my respect to the traditional owners of the lands I live and work on and elders past and present. My two most important roles in life are proud husband and father of two boys.
I am a clinical psychiatrist and medical educationalist from Newcastle. From 2012 to 2016 I was the (Executive) Medical Director of HETI. I have trained and worked in psychiatry in a number of rural locations and was an advocate for the development of the NSW Rural Generalist Training Program.
I am now currently working in Newcastle teaching and training medical students, junior doctors and psychiatry trainees. I am also enrolled in a PhD in medical education.
